Sept. 27, 2018. Imam Zaid Shakir addressed a passionate crowd of protesters from diverse communities (Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, and others) who joined hands to greet Prime Minister Narendra Modi with loud slogans and a sea of placards upon his arrival at San Jose’s SAP Center for a stage-managed Silicon Valley “community reception.”

The posters, chants, and surprise banner drop challenged the Modi PR team’s attempts to whitewash the controversial politician’s record. The protest was the culmination of a month-long campaign to educate Silicon Valley leaders and elected officials about Modi’s troubling human rights record.

The date of the event is incorrect. It should read September 27, 2015 not 2018. JAK
